Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, whose stone walls resonate with Gregorian chants, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

Our guide Becky was absolutely wonderful. She was knowledgeable about the whole area. The views were amazing but I could have done without the stop at the Abby. Lunch at the winery was the coolest thing ever, the food and atmosphere were great.

Amazing experience we would highly recommend to anyone who will listen! Our guide Pete was fantastic. Best tour guide either of us have ever had. Pete is from the US so speaks English well, but is Italian and extremely knowledgeable. Tuscany is absolutely breathtaking and if you have a limited amount of time while in Rome, this tour is well worth the money and the time. A few items we thought would be helpful to know ahead of time: 1 the bus has no restroom, however 2 the bus stops in a shop in Umbria about 1.5 hours from Rome where you can stretch your legs, use the restroom, and sample truffles, cheeses, meats, wines, limoncello, olive oils, vinegar, cookies, candy, etc. 3 You will only drink wine during lunch and you get 4 small samples i.e. 6 bottles were shared among 25 people, so don't expect a buzz!

Loved this tour, one of the best days we spent in Rome! Included 5 tastes of wine at vinyard with lunch. Did wish we got to see how they made wine at the vinyard. We only stayed for lunch and left. Still a great tour!
